Rated 5 out of 5Â by bahrm4 Feels heavy duty and practically fail-proof
Purchased 2 years back after a combo unity got stolen. I decided to upgrade to this unit. This definitely is more beefy and the torque is insane. I use it for mainly wood but using large bits like with Kreg joinery, it's much better than the entry level 18v drills. Used with the 3.0aH battery, it can go and go. For drilling holes to hang pictures, or assemble cabinets, go smaller. For anchoring a wall to concrete and drilling pocket holes in oak, go this route.

Ive had this drill for three years now. I use it daily to drill steel. It still performs as well as the day I first took it out of the box. Ive drilled thru 1" thick stock. Ive even drilled using 15/16" bits on several occasions. Again this is thru steel, not wood. This drill gets the job done. It is hands down the best cordless drill I've ever used. Batteries last and charge quickly.

Heavy Duty Hammer Drill in a Light package! The LED is a nice feature you only notice when you need it - a great bonus! The batteries provide "full power" right up till they die; so you don't have that slow painful death of old battery technology. I like the metal chuck as apposed to the plastic ones (yes, even Bosch's plastic). My only complain, which is not a deal breaker - just annoying: no bit holder on the drill. Yes, I have bit boxes and belts; but it's nice to have an on-board double headed bit always at the ready. But I won't go back to DeWalt anytime soon for it!

I have owned this drill for a couple of years now and it's running the same as the first day I opened it. It is built tough enough to withstand the heavy abuse that I put on it everyday at the jobsite.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by BigBen Great tool!
I bought this fine tool as a gift to myself! It is WONDERFULL, never did I have to tighten the chuck to hold the bit or drill. It is the best hand tight chuck I ever used. The torque that come out of this tool is so strong it was more than any 1/2" electric that I had on the job site!
